As you can imagine, Bossy has been busy preparing for her Excellent Road Trip. And this is her regime:
Organize names and addresses into a streamlined database.Watch America’s Next Top Model marathon.
Plan the exact route including daily mileage.Melt white chocolate in a saucepan and scrape away burnt yellow bits.
Contact centrally located Bloggers and arrange events in major cities.Nap. Mmmm. Couch.
Eat only low-salt broths and citrus.Consider a third order of Chinese Spare Ribs.
No alcohol. I am boozy.
Jog three miles regularly.Tabulate number of calories one burns adjusting the pillow under one’s legs.
In addition to the above list, Bossy has been off garnering financial support and she has this exciting announcement to make about her Corporate Sponsors:
She is still awaiting an announcement about Corporate Sponsors!
But Bossy doesn’t mind hashing out the final details of her Corporate Sponsorship because she is focused, like a high beam. On a concrete barrier. That is coming toward her. Fast.
But it’s all good because currently Bossy has the constitution and acuity to handle this situation and more. Why, just this morning Bossy’s husband pointed out Bossy’s current biorhythm because some of you may remember Bossy’s husband has this dirty little secret:
For these reasons and more, Bossy thinks today is perfect for A Very Bossy Contest and here it is:
Can you guess the following snack that Bossy prepared for the Super Bowl? Hint: you smear it on crackers:
Here are the rules: Bossy’s friend Amy: forget about entering.
The rest of you: take your best guess—Bossy isn’t looking for ingredients, she’s looking for the name of the spread—which also describes what’s in the spread, so. Yeah. If more than one of you guesses correctly, Bossy will draw the winning name from a hat. The hat she uses to cover the hair that was butchered ten days ago—and if no one guesses correctly, Bossy will put all of your names in the hat. Because Bossy
is generous needs to lighten her load.
The prize? Something from Bossy’s Basement of course: these romantic floating Valentine candles. Because romantic? Eh.
And now for the smelly socks: Bossy has decided to become the Cruise Director of her very own blog. And in that role here are a few upcoming activities on the Leto deck this week:
- Bossy will be holding another exciting contest. Any day now. Any minute really. And this time the prize will be awesome, because it will be from anyone? Anyone? Bossy’s basement.
- Bossy is planning a Tutorial about painting. She’s planning it, she’s not writing it. But still: see how fun this Cruise Director thing is?
- Bossy wants to tell you all about how she went back to the salon this past weekend to get her hair “fixed”. Bossy is using quotation marks. Around the word Fixed. Don’t miss!
- And finally Bossy wants to tell the story about how she went out to dinner on Saturday night with friends and did something she hasn’t done since she was in a sorority. Wait, Bossy was never in a sorority. Ah ha! See how special this thing was she did this past weekend?
So stay tuned, and don’t forget to render your best spread. Er, guess. Good luck!
Momo Fali saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 9:56 am
Okay, I’m going out on a limb and calling it cracker spread. What? More specific? How about Apricot Cheese Dip?
JenniferB saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 10:02 am
Spinach Dip (cause that is my favorite and I want some. Dang it.)
Jules saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 10:12 am
Linda saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 10:21 am
I guess shrimp butter!
Sheryl saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 10:24 am
Mango dill dip- Magdilly dip , LOL.
Yeah, I don’t cook, can you tell?
Avitable saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 10:25 am
Wait, that’s not right.
Sister Honey Bunch saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 10:26 am
Smoked fish spread.
Haley saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 10:27 am
Hmmm. I guess Spinach Artichoke dip. I’m curious about your hair “fixing” as well…
I’ll be back to check on that.
Grandma J saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 10:27 am
Based on my vast knowledge of dips and mixed up stuff, I’m gonna call this…
Carrot Orange (tree growing in the middle)Spread.
If I win, please keep the candles and put them in your emergency kit for your Excellent Road Trip. You never know when you will need flares.
chocolatechic saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 10:28 am
Olive Cheese spread.
Miss Wisabus saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 10:28 am
Onion soufflé? It looks like my aunt’s onion soufflé.
Little Miss Sunshine State saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 10:30 am
Some kind of Veggie Hummus Spread?
Martha in Kansas saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 10:38 am
Hey, my biorhythm turned out the same. I’m not feelin’ real confident in that site!
I’d call that dip “Here’s Some Dip” if I made it. Hope I don’t win — I’ve got problems enough, what with the biorhythm and all.
The Mom Bomb saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 10:39 am
Crab dip, perhaps? Bossy, so many contests, so many surprises ahead! My heart is racing and I’m panting like a dog in heat. And I’m sure my biorhythms are all messed up, too. Are you trying to kill me with suspense?
Tempered Woman saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 10:39 am
Cold salmon spread with dill?!?!? I stretched that image out as much as I could with my fancy “paint” program that came with this fancy computer. I’m trying to be very detectivey. I’m thinking those are capers in the cup behind it. Am I right? Am I right? Did I do good sleuthing?
Ok~ I can’t offer much in the way of corporate sponsorship but if you stop in St. Louis I’ll buy you a boozy beverage of choice (or 2 or 3~ me a boozy too)!
Kristin saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 10:39 am
i’m not quite sure if bossy is an Ellen DeGeneres fan, but bossy really needs to get on the horn and try contacting the Ellen show people about her Excellent Road trip. Bossy’s trip seems right up Ellen’s alley.
Rachel May saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 10:45 am
I’m going with Seafood-of-Some-Sort-and-Dill-Just-Put-It-On-the-Cracker-Already Dip.
Bossy is making me hungry.
Junebug saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 10:50 am
I’m guessing roasted red bell pepper/cheese dip. 😀 or maybe it was crab dip?
anastasia beaverhausen saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 10:52 am
I’m guessing crabs. IN THE DIP, for heaven sake! So…Crab Dip? Yeah, try to wrap your head around that fancy title! And I wasn’t in a sorority either. I’ve never needed to pay dues to a club in order to behave like a drunken HO. I’ve got skillz, Bossy.
Sarah is Ok saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 10:54 am
Oooo, I second the Ellen idea. Good one, Kristin.
My guess: white chocolate, crab, and evergreen dip. I love that dip too, Bossy! I always make it for parties.
vuboq saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 10:54 am
Nothing says “BOSSY” like Lipton Soup French Onion Dip.
mp saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 10:57 am
It’s CRAB DIP…
Dree saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 11:00 am
Artichoke Cheese Dip?
Undomestic Diva saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 11:06 am
Artichoke dip, store bought and dumped into pretty bowl to insinuate homemadeness.
Not that I would do that.
we_be_toys saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 11:11 am
Salmon and chipotle dip?
That’s my guess and I’m sticking to it.
When is the road trip supposed to be getting underway? Ever the procrastinator, I haven’t sent in my funding. Seems there is always something that comes up, like a dentist bill, that gets in the way of higher spending – its very annoying.
Barb saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 11:18 am
Onion cheese dip, of course!
Jill in Vermont saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 11:20 am
Vegetable Ranch Dip?
Kristi saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 11:21 am
Sundried Tomato and Crab Dip.
I have no idea what sorority sisters did, but I can’t wait to hear what Bossy did.
Robin saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 11:24 am
I’m going to have to go with artichoke dip.
David saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 11:26 am
Gelatinous non-kosher dip?
If I win I will be melting the candles into a formless blob and throwing them into the trash in a gesture that symbolizes the joyful lightness of my heart.
Shannon saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 11:30 am
It looks like a cheeseball to me. Except not so much in ball-like form anymore.
Buf saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 11:32 am
Spinach, artichoke and carrot dip??
Alice saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 11:33 am
i vote crab dip. and also for pictures of the “fixed” haircut. ALSO! i hear sorority sisters have a lot of pillow fights while doing each other’s hair. was that it?
Sheila saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 11:35 am
I know this. It’s:
Always-Bring-a-Trojan Crabtastic Crabby Crab Dip with Crab(s). It’s not just tempting – it can give you a bad reputation.
Bobo saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 11:38 am
I was there and I dont even know what it is. But It was really good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Dharmamama saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 11:50 am
I heard a radio program where one of the DJs was talking about Ro-Tel dip. I had never heard of it, and couldn’t imagine eating something called Ro-Tel. Turns out it’s tomatoes and Velveeta. (sausage optional)
Ro-Tel sounds too much like Roach Motel. I think I’d call it something else.
Your dip obviously doesn’t have Velveeta – looks tasty!
Maybe it’s crab and dill…
AmyW saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 11:53 am
golden saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 11:54 am
Lulu saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 11:56 am
It looks deceivingly like Asian Chive Dip. But I’ve been known to be wrong.
Tammy saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 11:57 am
Artichoke & Spinach dip
V saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 11:58 am
I already used my rubber on Super Tuesday Crab Dip?
nutmeg saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 12:07 pm
Duh! Onion dip from the envelope! Are you visiting me on your blog tour? Do I have to send you an invitation from my basement or something – the directions were so confusing? Will your hair be – ah – fixed by then?
Kristin saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 12:15 pm
I’m gonna put two of my favorite dips together and say Artichoke and Crab! Yum!
I’ll help you plan abig event in the Twin Cities, if your coming our way!
Not the Queen saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 12:16 pm
Artichoke jalepeno dip? Looks yummy, whatever it is.
Foolery saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 12:29 pm
It’s either Straight To Your Thighs ‘n’ Make ‘Em Rub Together Dip, or Yip Dip Dip Dip Dip Dip Dip Get a Job Dip.
So Cheese Loaf.
Chesapeake Bay Woman saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 12:32 pm
Shrimp and dill spread. Garnished with a clump of green hair. Oh, Bossy, what DID they do at that salon?
Jenny saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 12:38 pm
That has GOT to be Artichoke-something dip. Crab artichoke dip, perhaps?
Peg saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 12:40 pm
Salmon and dill. Please don’t include this guess in the contest. I won the last crap, I mean treasure, from the basement.
Imperatrix saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 12:41 pm
Can a newbie play?
I say it’s “Hummus a Few Bars and We’ll Figure It Out” Dip.
Tootsie Farklepants saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 12:41 pm
I’m gonna go with Crab dip.
Emily R saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 12:43 pm
I vote hummus. I love hummus. I eat hummus.
Aimee saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 12:43 pm
Dang all my picks have been taken. Spin, art, crab, onion dip from a packet that makes your butt fat (the dip makes your butt fat not the packet???????)
Can I add ched and dill to the mix?
would that help?
Flea saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 12:47 pm
Looks like either a tuna or salmon dip. I could totally go for the salmon dip, as we’re not allowed to have salmon in the house anymore. 🙁 Makes my hunny’s throat swell shut.
liza saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 12:47 pm
spinach dip? hmn… cause, well, its my favorite! and I just can’t really tell but it sure looks tasty!
Hotdog saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 12:49 pm
It’s a hummus, carrot, sage (or rosemary) dip-a-roni. I can’t wait for my floating candles! Wahooey! “Honey draw me a bath, I gots fancy candles comin in the mail!”
Laura saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 12:51 pm
Asiago, artichoke and cheddar spread. Tastes yummy warm & cold.
Miss Britt saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 12:52 pm
Your Google is selling me Asian girls.
I think it’s the excessive use of the word “spread”.
Mayberry Magpie saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 12:58 pm
It’s an internet recipe that’s spreading like wildfire in Mayberry.
Don’t dis it ’til you’ve tried it, my friend.
Raz saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 1:03 pm
I would have read this post in detail, but I was too busy thinking about ANTM. I’m sorry!
Clare saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 1:09 pm
I’m guessing spinach artichoke dip…mmmm that sounds good. Soooo hungry…
Assertagirl saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 1:17 pm
Looks like hummus to me!
Heather Outside Boston saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 1:30 pm
It looks like Crab Dip to me — and you just mentioned the trip to Baltimore…
Now to read the other (more clever than my) comments.
anne nahm saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 1:31 pm
Salmon and dill dip. Heyyyy… Were you watching Barefoot Contessa last week? I totally made that dip just so I could make the Long Island Iced Tea as well.
threeboysindc saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 1:32 pm
Is that the artichoke, parmesan and mayo dip?
Are you coming to DC bossy? I’ll buy you a beer. I’ll even show you where Obama lives. Really. We can stalk him, except for the secret service detail. Maybe he’ll be in the big house by the time you come to DC. The big house that’s white, that is…
Janet saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 1:38 pm
I’m going with crab dip, even though it looks like I’m just copying so many other guesses. But I’m not copying. I guessed crab dip before I clicked over from my reader. Honest.
Heather Outside Boston saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 1:39 pm
Yep, they were more clever. I’d curse you all, but I’m too busy sniggling and trying not to wet my pants. Thank you, all.
magpie saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 1:46 pm
Lipton Onion Soup Dip – the kind you mix with sour cream and then eat with your fingers…right? right?
gramps saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 1:53 pm
Whipped Carp!!!!!!! Made me laugh
Bought some stuff from Trader Joe’s called Tzatziki—“creamy garlic cucumber dip”. Wow!!
Yours is Creamy Cauliflower stuff with Jalapinos (sp) and other stuff in it.
Heather saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 2:02 pm
Knorr Vegetable Spinach Dip.
corrie saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 2:27 pm
Bossy is ever CREATIVE in the kitchen…
Hmmmm…. Onion dip w/ Lipton’s onion soup mix!!! That must be it!
I am looking forward to an update on the hair ‘fix’!! I am currently considering a distress call to the salon for same…but wonder if I can hack going into that environment again so soon! Usually I visit the hairdresser 3x/yr.
Good luck getting ready for your roadtrip! It’s so much work, maybe Bossy should just rest up a bit.
andrea saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 2:28 pm
Shrimp artichoke dip? No idea. But now I’m hungry.
queenoqueens saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 2:41 pm
Is it that mock apple pie filling made with Ritz crackers?
ali saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 2:47 pm
um…blue cheese and roasted red pepper spread?
Candy saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 2:54 pm
Easy. Crab dip. Where’s my prize?
Velma saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 3:17 pm
I’m gonna mix it up a little with the adjectives…
SPICY crab dip?
Melissa saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 4:13 pm
I have no idea what the dip is, but my four-year-old just walked up to the computer screen, saw the love boat photo, and asked: “Mom, are those the people RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT?”
Jen M saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 4:29 pm
Veggie Spread? Dill Spread? Veggie Dill Spread? Veggie Cheese Spread? Crabby Veggie Spread? Cheesey Crab Spread?
I’m disqualified, aren’t I?
joeinvegas saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 4:35 pm
Hmm, do you need a bartender on that cruise deck? I make a mean margaritta.
Corporate sponsorship, huh? What does that entail? I’ll throw in some logo cup holders.
Renee in Seattle saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 4:39 pm
Hot Artichoke jalapeno dip/spread, because Bossy is spicy that way.
Manic Mommy saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 4:50 pm
I was going to say hummus but that’s been done. Now I’ll just name random ingredients:
– cream cheese
– sour cream
Do I win??
Bossy, did you French kiss a sorority girl this weekend?
JPend saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 4:51 pm
Deb on the Rocks saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 4:55 pm
I say “Garden Vegetable Spread.” Probably yummy and garlicy. Final answer.
rusalina saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 5:35 pm
It is store bought, guaranteed 🙂
Perhaps salmon dip???
Dara saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 5:46 pm
Crab dip/spread. I was gonna say hummus…but, I think that green thingy is dill, and I’ve never had dill in hummus, so I’m sticking with the crab.
I love that you watch ANTM. You should check out four-four for fantastically funny/campy recaps.
jean saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 6:13 pm
Peggy saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 6:23 pm
Creamed Flotsam and Jetsam with low fat mayo…AND Dill…MMMMM My fav!
bev saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 6:38 pm
Why it’s …. French Onion Lard Dip… of course, yummy!
moosh in indy. saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 6:53 pm
Pineapple cream cheese spread.
And did I mention the Indy 500, in INDY. WHERE I LIVE?
You do have a NASCAR ad in you sidebar, serendipity? I think so.
AmberStar saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 6:55 pm
Cajun Crab Dip is my guess.
mary gese saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 7:35 pm
My guess is Smoked salmon spread.
Janna saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 7:37 pm
Just cause it has those little yellow touches (I’m going to assume they’re not just bad lighting), I’m saying Artichoke Lemon Dip?
Cause that’s what it looks like to me.
They sell it at my local Whole Foods, but I don’t even know if you live near a Whole Foods.
And because otherwise WHAT the heck are those yellow bits?!
Biddy saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 7:47 pm
looks a lot like crab dip to biddy!
and i’m very excited about the painting tutorial, cause seriously, i suck
HRH saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 8:13 pm
that is mock spinach dip. why don’t you spring for the REAL spinach dip?
The Domestic Goddess saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 8:36 pm
Horseradish and Dill?
Oh, and the candles? Upside down they look like butts.
Heidi saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 9:51 pm
It looks just like Rachael Ray’s Olive Dip that I made.
Arbie saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 10:33 pm
Am I reading Bossy’s side bar correctly? chnlove.com???
Robin saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 10:42 pm
Looks like my Mom’s Cheese-Shrimp Dip. So… how quickly can you get my new candles to California? Have you tried the curls rock yet?
Mrs. G. saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 10:58 pm
It’s dip. I really think it’s dip.
All Adither saysFebruary 5, 2008 at 11:14 pm
Donut-pineapple-instant coffee-molasses-lemonade dip.
Jenn @ Juggling Life saysFebruary 6, 2008 at 12:49 am
Well it’s not Dippity Do!
joeinvegas saysFebruary 6, 2008 at 12:51 am
Wow – 101 comments! You are becoming Dooce!
kate saysFebruary 6, 2008 at 12:52 am
uh, i don’t know what that stuff is, but i’m with you…romance, eh.
however. i have a really good database administrator who i will pimp out to you to organize your road trip, IF you include san diego (specifically, my house).
Whit saysFebruary 6, 2008 at 1:06 am
Cat food and mayo. Mostly cat food.
Hacksaw saysFebruary 6, 2008 at 1:27 am
I’m going with the Spinach-Artichoke dip. That’s what we had at my house.
Bunk saysFebruary 6, 2008 at 1:54 am
It’s obvious to me. It’s warm lumpy yellow mayonnaise spread. We love it.
kim at allconsuming saysFebruary 6, 2008 at 6:39 am
My guess is Philly Crab Dip.
And the girl crush I have on Bossy is entering the just-ridiculous stratosphere.
Heidi saysFebruary 6, 2008 at 8:35 am
I have to go with hummus.
William saysFebruary 6, 2008 at 8:52 am
Hi Julie…I mean Bossy
Bretta saysFebruary 6, 2008 at 9:16 am
That looks like a bowl of capers behind it, so I’m thinking Salmon Dill Spread.
sher saysFebruary 6, 2008 at 9:29 am
the main ingredient must be dry vegetable soup mix. it’s good eatin’ ya know, and a must for us non-cooks when we make a dip. it’s like onion soup mix, but with little specks of green and orange.
sher saysFebruary 6, 2008 at 9:30 am
doh! what i meant to say is that it’s the vegetable dip from the recipe on the back of the dry soup package, right? 😉
meleah rebeccah saysFebruary 6, 2008 at 9:39 am
sour cream and onion?
Meg saysFebruary 7, 2008 at 6:46 am
Artichoke crab dip! I’d like to donate the candles to charity, please.
